now that, not much time is left for me in delhi..would love to collect some memories of great food i had here over a long long stay of 22 years .. :-)

as a kid...
Nirulas ice cream parlour @ CP
ice cream sodas were a delight..with me and sis ordering different flavours n then sharing them with each other and fighting over who's flavour is better..

Chacha ke chole bhature @Kamla Nagar
most amazing stuffed bhature u can ever find..though a bit extra oily..but with my kind of fats who cares for oil..

Chacha di hatti @Kamla Nagar
want to have a heavy breakfast of puri chole n finest lassi, try this junction..the place hasnt changed a bit in 10 years n still caters the best food..

Bercos @ Kamla Nagar
this one stands out from others..has a cool ambiance and decent service with the actual always smiling faces..the menu holds no difference from others but the hands that prepare it does has a difference..vegetarian not quite the specialty but surely can shell out amazing non veg dishes..

Dominos @ Kamla Nagar
one of the very few with a seating available and the only one with a seating of over 40..always enjoyed eating dominos pizza over pizza hut but still the former lack the hospitality and service..hope they get over there deliver n cater shit and put themselves into a proper restaurant and eat out joint business..but thnx to rajiv had many discounts here which added onto the fun of having pizzas..

Omelet'S @ Kamla Nagar
everything isnt always right but there always is a french toast to get your mouth right and a chilled fruit bear to gulp it down.

Dwarka & Udupi @ Kamla Nagar
two best south indian joints in delhi, i would say even sagar ratna fails to beat them with there flavour though the service and presenation is not upto the mark but a happy place to enjoy good meal with your family..

Vaishno Chaat Bhandar @ Kamla Nagar
tiniest of road, tight parking at both the pavements and 8 wont even find space barely to put your feet on the ground..from dahi bhallas to chaat papri..gol gappas and sonth wala pani..chilla and tikki..everything is simply great

Barista @ Kamla Nagar
Dark temptation with a novel in hand used to be the best thing in the past..but with the book store as well the guitar gone hardly a place to stick around but pictionary and scrabble is stil available if you are thinking about killing your time..

CCD @ Kamla Nagar
first one to launch free juke box concept used to be a paradise still is great with nice sofas n couches to lie around all over the place..

Banana Leaf @ CP
decent place with cool ambiance and pretty nice food..but you wont want to be a regular at the place..

Pizza Hut @ CP, JANPATH
with a dance at every hour you can enjoy sitting around and having a slice of garlic bread exotica and any pizza thats having mushroom :p
and not forget the special meal for two they are having now..forget the everything is worth tea is a better add on then anything else over here..

Bhel Puri wale bhaiya next to ODEON @ CP
thanx to utsav n his dad i tasted one of the most tempting bhel puri available in here..sasta n tikau cant be the word, as for a road vendor he sells it at a pretty decent prcie of 30 bucks per small plate..but every sq cm of it is worth the prcie..

Shiva's Pao Bhaji @ Model Town
right blend of spices and chillies with a zordar tadka..this thella is stationed at its very place exactly at 4pm every day and starts off with orders exactly at 6:30 and by 9:30 everything is sold out with the finest of cars parking in front and blocking the road..

pastry shop @ Model Town
just the right place for the people with a sweet tooth..cakes, pastries, puddings everything is pretty good and important thing being is its freshness

Grand Plaza @ Model Town
not a place to have a meal but some snacks would really touch your stomach's deepest trenches.. :p
chocolate dough nuts and pasrty shop is simply amazing..but cant count on the freshness..

Chawla's Chic Inn @ Kamp
wasnt upto the mark most of the times but then there were days when you wont be able to stop yourself from shouting whoaa!!! delicious..tandori and afgani were value for each bone and khadai was totally finger licking..
sad that it no longer exists there..or anywhere..i wonder why..?

Chinese Van opposite to girl's hostel@Chatraniwas Marg
now this is what u will call sasta n tikau..though not for 2 people ordering 3 things n not even finishing either of them..damn you always are wasting things..manchurian is so soft n mouth watering with a specialty in Soups.. :p

Kachori wale bhaiya @ St. Xavier's , Rajniwas Marg
9 years of school life,4 years of college..but the cycle stays and so does the awesome taste and khattapan in d kachori..can never forget it..

keep checking..still a lot more to come.. :-)
